Pedicures, Pub Crawls, and Autocross
online with supplies purchased from Midwest Supplies Homebrewing & Winemaking. The starter juice was tasty, but very sweet. I'm excited to see how it turns out! I whipped up some mushroom risotto with shrimp and asparagus for dinner - yum. And then just before bed I managed to finish my book!
Final opinion of the All Souls Trilogy: I really liked how they used science to explain and justify the fantasy aspects of the books and I liked how the plot wasn't entire smooth. The characters make mistakes and realize they need to try something different and switch plans. And as a lover of historical fiction, I found the 2nd book of the series quite interesting. The two main characters became a bit predictable and annoying by the end, but all of the quirky supporting characters were nuanced and relate-able. Oh, and the intimacy scenes in the book were cringe-worthy. If you read the series, then just skim past them. I couldn't put the books down while I was reading them, though, so I obviously quite enjoyed them overall. If you're looking for something with a bit of fantasy, a bit of science, and a bunch of history then these are a great read!
